10 FEMALE TATTOO ARTISTS WE LOVE RIGHT NOW
Nathalie Magdenel // Europe // nathalie_magdenel
Nathalie works out of Europe, and it looks like she will be all over the continent in the coming months. She does really bold, graphic designs and I love how thick and intense the lines are. Her style is definitely unique and highly recognizable.
Tati Compton // Los Angeles // taticompton
Tati does handpoked tattoos out of LA. Her designs usually feature the female form and have a mystical feel to them. I love the dotting details that add a kind of sparkle to each tattoo.
Rex LC // Modern Electric, Berkeley CA // rex_ttt
Rex works with mainly black linework and has a really diverse style. I actually recently had a consultation with her for a tattoo I’m getting in a few months and I can say that she is extremely talented and really in tune with what her customers want.
Shannon Perry // Valentines Tattoo, Seattle WA // shannoneperry
Shannon Perry is notorious for her highly realistic gemstone tattoos. They incorporate so much color and light in a way that I’ve never seen in another tattoo artist’s work. Her portraits are also incredibly realistic and fun, we're obsessed with this Jonathan RIchman one!
Pony Reinhardt // Tenderfoot Studio Portland, OR // freeorgy
Pony was one of the first tattoo artists I discovered on instagram and who really got me interested in the art. Her work is incredibly detailed and usually features apothecary and anatomy. She does lots of large scale work and each one is as beautiful as the last.
Marie Brennan // Diving Swallow Tattoo, Oakland CA // mariebrennanart
Marie does some of the most realistic plant work I’ve seen. She also does a very cool thing where you can bring in a piece of a plant and she will tattoo it onto you!
Danielle Silva // Diving Swallow Tattoo, Oakland CA // doomsdaydani
Danielle is an extremely diverse artist but I love her work for how colorful and fun it is. I especially enjoy her funky dog portraits.
Natasha Hanna Scott // Modern Electric, Berkeley CA // nhannascott
Natasha does lots of black and white florals and I would compare her to Pony except that she seems to usually work at a smaller scale and her designs are a little more pared down and simple. I love how light and magical they all are.
